|Publication Date:||1 July 2011|
|ICS Code (Mechanical structures for electronic equipment):||31.240|
Scope and object
This part of IEC 62610 provides for compatible methods of forced air cooled cabinets assembled with associated subracks and/or chassis in accordance with the IEC 60297 and IEC 60917 series.
This design guide contains the following:
• Reference temperature
• Preferred airflow conditions
• Airflow volume conditions
• Standard air
a) Thermal interfaces of subrack and/or chassis based equipment in a cabinet Reference temperature Preferred airflow conditions Airflow volume conditions Standard air
b) Procedures for determining compatible forced airflow conditions in a cabinet by applying typical thermal interface conditions
The drawings used are not intended to indicate product design. They are only explanatory indications for determining forced air-cooling structure.
The terminology used complies with IEC 60917-1.
